Who saith that about a month ago I and Owen Parry and Edward Edwards were sleeping one night in Edwards the Tinmans Tallant and we got up about four oclock next morning and went for a Hook belonging to John Turner and then went to David Davies's warehouse and drew the staple out
of the door, opened the door and went in the warehouse and each of us took a quantity of Brown Sugar out of a Cask and carried it away and
returned to Edward's Tallant where we eat part of it and left the remainder in the hay, taped up in a piece of an old shirt, and the next night we
finished eating it.
